I’m beginning to think that we all have something we are waiting for.  The promises we are anxiously waiting to come to fruition, the dreams we keep close to our hearts. It may be how we get through the day or it may be why we can’t sleep at night, too preoccupied with the thoughts of what we are going to do when those dreams become a reality.

They are great to think about, but what about the Giver? The loving and kind Father who wants to bless us with every good thing is waiting for me to turn to Him and focus simply on who He is and not just what He can give. Contentment is only found there, looking into His face where things and stuff fall away.

What I want is to long for eternity the same way I’m longing for earthly things.
